8:05 a.m.-2:35 p.m.
Athena first opened in September 1969. We serve sixth, seventh and eighth grade students from classrooms on the third floor of the Athena complex on Long Pond Road. Athena Middle School is a separate and unique school from our neighbor, Athena High School. We have our own administration, counseling staff, nurse, teaching staff, support staff, cafeteria, gymnasium and activities. Though the majority of classes are located on the 3rd floor, we also use some second and first floor rooms as well.
Athena is built almost in a square, which makes it easy to find classrooms. The third floor is approximately 1/5 miles in length. Students do a fair amount of walking each day traveling to and from classes. Student lockers are located in the hallways near the student’s first period classroom. Each student has his/her own hall locker, as well as a gym locker when changing for swimming and/or athletics.
